Quarter on nose trying to put in funnel stuck in the front of your pants with your eyes closed. Nooby sees this thinks he can do it , then whith his eyes closed you pour water in the funnel.
    That's rough! but funny!

    I have a Hobart Handler 135 that I use alot. I also have a Miller 135 at work. I greatly prefer my Hobart over the Miller. My Hobert performs much better (please don't gang slap me, am only being honest). There is a place for the smaller migs, I use mine alot, would be lost without it.

    I've owned my own shop for just about 26 years now and one thing I can share and/or perhaps re-visit with my fellow shop owners here is that; there really isn't a wide range of perks or benefits the owner enjoys. However, with that said one benefit that I take full advantage of is determining shop rules! With my guys just about running the show anyway, one rule I adamantly enforce and that of course is no: air biscuits, squeezing the cheese, floating a hamster, releasing a boxer doughnut and/or producing butt burps. These are rude, gross, vial and furthermore disgusting acts of what I believe to be retaliation, rebellious subterfuge or even twisted fun and humor at the expense of my health and well being and just won't be tolerated! **** the farts!

It is in my opinion that a fart regardless of it's yield should be classified as an IED (improvised explosive device). Hence, providing federal protection in and around ones shop! It is also in my opinion that anyone who knowingly engages in the act or practice of methane production be immediately terminated, reported to homeland security and severely gang slapped!

    I do the same thing. I power my SP-170T wire feeder off of my engine driven welder for doing the odd remote job, and at the race track. It has worked very well for me with no ill effects on either unit.

    Later,

    What to buy

    I did some play welding in another lifetime. I'm close to retirement and want to "make" things, do things and have some fun to boot. I went to a welding open house last week and of course Miller and Lincoln had the 18 wheelers with every welder the ever made. Miller even had one of the Orange County Chopper inside a plexiglass enclosure.
    Anyway, the good thing was that they had welding booths set up so the public could try different machines. I've been doing my homework and really wanted to try the MM180. I did and welded aluminum with the new (less than $200) spool gun that miller just came out with. I was very impressed that I laid out some dimes my first time holding a MIG gun.
    Because of the 220 requirement, instead of having to run a new circuit and being married to one physical location, I'm going to run it off my generator which has a 230/30A outlet. It is a 5500 watts run and 8500 peak generator. Miller said it should be fine since the welder only draws 21 amps. Makes me much more portable if I have a tractor problem in the woods...
    Anxious to see who reads and responds to my post here.
    Good luck.

    It can be a little hard to grasp at first but look at it this way. A wire feed welder is feeding hundreds of inches per minute into the weld puddle where as it takes close to a minute to burn some stick electrodes and they are almost always less than 24" long.

    For those smaller rods we use this jewel 6010. And you are correct the machine can be to big.

    As a matter of fact we do have Martha's twin sister. She eats 3/8 carbons on a steady diet. Ya its a miller with a crank handle to adjust the amps. I'll take a picture of them together for us if you don't comment about their age. Sensitve the darlings are.

    Does Martha's big fat twin sister light her farts? Mind you she might have trouble reaching around...

    OK fellas,
    Thanks for the input, you have answered my question. I guess I will go for at least 250 amps, although with my bad attitude I think I need to go after Martha's big,fat, twin sister.

    Maybe it is one of these " old dogs new tricks " type things but it is hard for me to visualize something with an electrode just a little bigger than frog's hair doing the same job as a 1/8 or 5/32 rod in a stick welder. I guess I will have to cut some welds and take a look at the penetration as I am sure some of you have and maybe compare it with my stick welder. I am sure even my stick is a little small by some of your standards; it is a little Miller 300/200 AC/DC Thunderbolt. But she has been able to do everything I have ask of her so far, and being way smaller than Martha she had no trouble getting through the front door.

    And there is something to be said about asking a question and being open ended about it. We started off with amps ... and look where we ended up

    Back to the topic

    Basically, what everyone here is trying to say is that size DOES matter.
